- Child Custody and Support
- Mr. Dougay can work with clients to determine the specifics of child custody agreements, including considerations such as holiday and visitation schedules. He will also ensure that all of the relevant factors that affect child support payments are recognized so you reach a fair agreement.
- Property Division
- How property is divided and in what proportions can vary substantially. If you are involved in a divorce, the surest way to achieve a just division of assets is by having an experienced divorce attorney put your best interests first.
- Alternate Dispute Resolution
- Taking a case to trial can be a costly and lengthy process. Mediation, arbitration, and collaborative divorce are effective tools for a couple to arrive at divorce agreements without stepping foot in a courtroom.
- Marital Agreements
- These agreements spell out the terms of divorce should a marriage end, effectively safeguarding the interests of each partner. Prenuptial agreements are entered into before a couple weds, while postnuptial agreements are put into place sometime after this date.
- Spousal Maintenance or Support
- Also known as alimony, payment from one spouse to another is intended to compensate for economic imbalances that result after the dissolution of the marriage. This assistance may be vital to the payee, or a significant financial burden to the payer.
- Domestic Violence
- Abuse or allegations of violence will naturally complicate the divorce process. Victims will need additional legal protections and counseling to ensure their safety. Those falsely accused will need the help of an attorney to expose the truth and deliver justice.
